"A resonant rosary of non-metric pulses and uncommon harmonies.â Nine frequencies of sine tones (120, 121, 123, 127, 132, 140, 150, 164, 185) no pair of which have the same difference as any other pair, arranged according to gray code, with the tones' first appearances in ascending order, each possible combination of tones appearing exactly once."

Topics: electronic, computer music, sine waves, beat frequencies
